Rubiton Stakes 2020

Saturday February 8, 2020

Ladbrokes Tip: The Rubiton Stakes is a good Oakleigh Plate guide each Autumn Carnival

The Rubiton Stakes is a key Group 2 support act on CF Orr Stakes Day at Caulfield Racecourse in mid-February, which kicks off the top racing action of the annual Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

The Group 1 C.F. Orr Stakes (1400m) headlines the card, but there’s plenty of other action for the punters including in the form of the Rubiton Stakes for the sprinters run over 1100m under set weights plus penalties conditions.

An open age and sex event, the race offers a total of $200,000 in prize money and serves as a good lead-up to the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) back at the track a fortnight later. In 2016 Heatherly won the Rubiton Stakes before running third in the Oakleigh Plate, while the last horse to complete the double was Lankan Rupee (2014).

The next edition of the Rubiton Stakes runs on Saturday February 8, 2020.
